Beneath the Sea 2014 Recap thumbnail

Within a week of arriving back in New York, I was already leaving its borders once again. But this time, I wasn’t going far — just popping across state lines into New Jersey for a weekend at Beneath the Sea, the biggest consumer dive show in the US. I’ve attended the show twice before, as a…

Those that have been following my journey since the beginning know that I had no intentions of heading home to the Unites States just ten months after leaving, but yet I’ve never really gone into my reason for spending the month of March at home. Well, it was a combination of factors, but there was one…

Beneath The Sea 2011 Recap thumbnail

Like the New York Times travel show, I barely knew what to expect when I bought my ticket for the Beneath the Sea dive expo. I knew that the website was impossible to navigate, and so is New Jersey, where the show was located. Luckily I had use of a car that weekend so I had…

Spring in Albany Part I: Marching Out of Winter thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my 2019, including my time at home in Albany and around in March.  I recently wrote a post about surviving winter in Albany in which I concluded that frankly, spring doesn’t tend to bring much weather-related relief to the area, at least at first. The official first day of spring tends…

Under Jericoacoara’s Spell: A Brazilian Backpacker Paradise thumbnail

“Estava aqui!” I blinked awake, trying to determine if my eyes had properly opened or not. Yup, lids lifted. Confirmed. It was just pitch black both in and outside the bus I’d been on for the last six hours. I checked my phone, it was just after midnight. No service. I scanned the darkness outside my…
